For those of you working to follow the South Beach Diet, or just looking for a healthy snack bar, the South Beach Diet people have a Dark Chocolate Good to Go Bar that is certified gluten-free.
This bar has 9 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein (with 5 grams of fat). The first two ingredients are soluble corn fiber and chicory root fiber. As such, you can imagine that it is a “fibrous” bar, and it is, in some ways. The inner layer is like a fiber festival. It tastes good, but it requires a little work to chew. It’s coated in a layer of chocolate, a smooth sweetness to balance out the bar. There’s a bit of “marbling” of the chocolate, with some more chewy spots much like a tootsie roll.
Overall, the bar is flavorful and filling, with a good balance of nutrition to help you through your day. If you’re wondering why the South Beach Diet jumped on the gluten-free bandwagon, read about the South Beach Diet Gluten Solution book.
